I go to Las Vegas, Nevada a lot.
This year was no different and not just because this city is the newest city on the 30 Plus Teams Tour.
As many of you may or may not know, I go every June for the NHL Awards .
This year in Vegas was no different than any other time that I visit.
No, let me stop lying.
This year was different.
I did something in the city that’s New York City on steroids that I’ve never done before.
I went to the clubs in town .
That’s right, I said clubs .
You know those places where people of all ages go to drink, dance and sometimes act like a damn fool?
Yeah, those type of clubs.
Now you might ask what’s the big deal all clubs are the same no matter what city you’re in.
There’s bouncers and a velvet rope that stops you from getting into the club, especially if you’re by yourself .
I’ve seen clubs in other cities and I can tell you, just like a whole lot of other things, clubbing in Vegas is different .
No where else that I know of has nightclubs AND dayclubs.
Ain’t no party like a Las Vegas party no matter what time of the day it is.
Now with all the times that I’ve been to Vegas, you would think that I would know how to get into clubs.
I dont mean paying an arm and a leg to get into the club, but how does one get on these “guests lists”?
You could have one of those annoying “promoters” give you their card while you’re walking down the Las Vegas Strip with your friends and family but how do you know these people aren’t those infamous timeshare people that you see everywhere in town.
Since I never went to a club in Vegas but was always interested, I just didn’t know .
Enter a company recommended to me by a resident of Las Vegas called No Cover Nightclubs.
Now before I continue, this company didn’t pay me to talk about them and say nice things.
This is my opinion and I’m sticking to it.
The people who run this company and website are wicked awesome .
If you happen to be in Las Vegas and want to go clubbing on certain nights, these are the people you talk to.
They can get you into the hottest clubs in town.
Just log onto their website, NoCoverNightClubs.com, sign up, put the club or clubs that you wish to go to and what night, and voila, you’ll get an email telling you that you’re on the guest list and what time you should be in the “guest list” line.
Yes, you’re special .
You have a line for you and your friends.
Or you can be like me.
I went with three people-
Me, myself, and I.
I had a great time too.
The email that you’re sent tells you what to wear, what time to get there and that you’ll get two free drinks.
They’re mostly rum or vodka, anything else, you pay for it.
Best of all, you pay NOTHING to get into the club.
No cover, remember ?
While I was in town, I went to two nightclubs, Marquee in the Cosmopolitan and Hyde at Bellagio.
I was supposed to go to the club at the Golden Nugget, but sorry, I can’t party like a rock star at almost 66 years old the way I did at 36 years old.
I loved the Hyde because the crowd was older and the music kept me on my feet until 2:30 am.
(Forget the fact that the night that I went was the night before the hockey awards and the Hyde was having an invite only hockey party . Yours truly, the Sports Diva was on the guest list . Talk about 30 Plus Dreams ! )
There is a dress code of course, so leave the sweatsuits, sneakers , hats, and tshirts back in your hotel.
This is Vegas, dress to impress!
Now, if you’re on the guest list for the dayclubs, like I was for Rehab pool at the Hard Rock Hotel , same thing applies.
Get there at a certain time, go to the line that says “guest list” and you’re in, ready to party.
Have some identification with you and get ready to be searched just as though you’re at the airport.
This applies for both the nightclubs and dayclubs.
For the nightclub, I had to be in line by 10:30pm and for the dayclub, by 11:30am and with a bathing suit.
Don’t laugh. If you had on a tshirt and shorts,and no bathing suit, you can forget about getting in.
You weren’t but you can wear a hat.
I wore my New York Yankees hat just cause I am that team sports apparel fashionista .
Like at the Hyde, the music was so good you just had to dance even if you were in a pool.
I had to keep reminding myself that this is Las Vegas and the party starts early, even if it is a Sunday.
When I returned to New York almost a week later , I couldn’t believe that I actually went clubbing.
But I did and I had the best time ever.
Thank you No Cover Nightclubs , I will be visiting your website , NoCoverNightClubs.com, the next time I come to Las Vegas .
